Two years ago today, February 10, 2016, Senior Deputy Pat Dailey and Senior Deputy Mark Logsdon lost their lives in the line of duty serving and protecting us, the citizens and visitors of Harford County.
Never forgotten we continue to honor these heros. On Friday members of the public, Harford County Government, Bel Air Vol Fire Co, Joppa Magnolia VFC, and the Harford County Sheriffs' Office paused for a moment of silence to remember Pat and Mark.
